Cooldown: 15 - 20 hours, varies by skill

Syntax: cast 'glyph of entombment' <direction>

Few combine a greater knowledge of runes and symbolic magic with an
imposition of will upon the earth as the stoneshapers, a fact made manifest
in the glyph of entombment working. This spell may only be cast on an exit
of a room with physical ground; that is, not in the air or water. Should
anyone -- including the caster -- then walk through that exit, a wall of
stone will rise up to cover it, potentially sealing the victim within. No
more than one glyph may be inscribed in a single room at a time.
